I Love Poems

I like to live in a small town
Where the trees meet across the street,
Where you wave your hand and say "Hello"
To everyone you meet.

I like to stand for a moment,
Outside the grocery story,
And listen to the friendly gossip
Of the folks that live next door.

For life is interwoven
With the friends we learn to know.
And we hear their joys and sorrows
As we daily come and go.

So I like to live in a little town.
I care no more to roam
For every house in a little town
Is more than a house--It's a home.

Standing in the hallway of one thousand doors..
There is No turning back now,
Because one of them's yourz.
In your hand you're left holding, a shiny brass key, it opens but one door,
Beyond the threshold  you'll see .
If that door you have chosen,
Reveals what you seek,
Happiness will then guide you,
Away from wheather so bleak.
But if the wrong door you open,
With the shiny brass key.
It will be darkness u find,
To spend e'tern'i'ty..
-thats just half-

[@364304,Peaches] Im still a sucker for those Hallmark and Lifetime type movies where there's a return to one's hometown after years of living in a big city. Once there, it feels too much like a favorite sweater; surrounded by loving and gentle old friends and cousins, they seriously reflect on why they ever left in the first place.

One of my old favorite Iris Dement songs. I believe they ran the extended version at the end of the final episode of that old Northern Exposure series ....
